- Fins & Feathers (6/25) claim the big bugs have come and gone on the lower Madison, but chuck some crayfish in the chocolate.
- The Missoulian Angler (6/24) says the water is coming down (finally) and the big bugs are on Rock Creek.
- Troutfitters have a mess of reports. The most recent for Big Hole (6/23) trumpets the arrival of the aforementioned Salmonflies (and the masses on anglers they seem to attract).
- South Fork Outfitters (6/20) report that the river is getting back into shape after the spring flush. The big bugs are still a little ways off on this river.

Report Roundup: Welcome to Summer Edition
After six full months of winter (and about two days of spring) summer has come to the Eddy's part of the world, which means clear skies, warm weather, and stoneflies. The stones have already come and gone on the Henry's Fork, but they are just getting started on many waters in the region. If you like the big bugs, now is the time. As a general rule, if the water is down, the fishing is probably pretty good right now. So check the flows before you go (see the links in the sidebar).
